How do I know if I need a new roof? The following are things that may indicate that your roof needs replacing:  ~Missing, cracked or curling shingles ~Blistering or peeling paint ~Shingle, sheathing or siding decay ~Leakage in the attic after heavy rains ~Stains on interior walls or ceilings ~High energy bills
How long does it take to replace a roof? Replacing a roof, whether on a commercial or residential building, is a labor-intensive project and, depending on the type of roof, could take anywhere from a few days to 2 or more weeks. The time involved is substantially affected by the weather, as well. Wind, snow, rain, or even just the threat of one of these and will slow the process considerably.
Can you cover over your existing roof? Installing a roof over the top of an existing roof is generally acceptable under these guidelines: 1) A building cannot have more than two roofs; 2) No wet insulation can be left in place; 3) The roof structure must be able to handle the additional roof load; 4) The new roof must be attached to the roof deck to meet wind loads (it is not generally acceptable to adhere the new roof to the old roof).
Why does your roof leak? A cynic might answer that there are two kinds of roofs, those that leak and those that will leak eventually. Roofs leak from a break in the waterproofing layer, sometimes caused by mechanical damage (ie like someone dropping an HVAC access panel on the roof), sometimes from an opening in the sealer such as pitch pans and caulking, and sometimes from deterioration or defects in the roofing materials. The key roof management task is leak avoidance.
